LOCAL ACTIVITIES & ORGANIZATIONS

Over the years, River Hills' residents have developed many social activities and clubs. Some meet at the Country Club, some in private homes and some outside the gate. New members are always welcome to join, and the community supports all new activity groups. (The Country Club has many golf, tennis and swimming groups not listed here.) Below is a list of many of the activities, organizations and volunteer opportunities in the area.

VOLUNTEERISM

Many River Hills' residents give significant time and donations to local area charities and Service clubs. Some, like the large Lions Club and Sweet Repeat Charitable Foundation are based within River Hills, and some work from the River Hills Community Church just outside the west gate. Many of these charities have their own facilities and governing boards, but they are often largely staffed by River Hills volunteers (and more are always welcome).
